I’m really surprised at the smash this is turning out to be, because the song itself is so non-descript. Good for ha, tho

Billie didn’t do these numbers with her debut single please :rip:

exactly. it’s not really a valid comparison as they had completely different trajectories. 

 

billie is the product of playlisting. they didn’t chase one particular hit with her, but built her fanbase through multiple songs over the period of like a year on apple music. 

 

the only similarity is that billie still wasn’t really known to the masses when she had that major overnight breakthrough with her album release.

I think the reason I'm annoyed by this song/getting over it already is because anytime I put a playlist that it's featured in on shuffle, it plays like 3 times more than any of the other songs :rip: 

Good on her, though. I guess.

This is her debut single. All her other songs are soundtracks.

I agree that they had different trajectories, but I want to add:

 

Billie built her fanbase over the years, not only in one year. She already had +11m followers on IG and +2.5B streams on Spotify before her first top 20 hit (Bury a Friend). Olivia had like 1m on IG before Drivers License and like 300m on Spotify.

 

Billie's breakthrough was already expected cause her EP was a huge success (users here predicted this after Lovely/Bury a Friend, but people laughed). No one expected Olivia at all. Her biggest song on Spotify has 189m streams. Billie had multiple songs with over 200m by 2018.

hmm I will wait for what BB will say, but she wrote All I Want and it even charted on HOT 100 at #90.
